Flexibility all depends on your department, boss, management style. The company as a whole may be flexible but your boss usually has the final word on expectations.

it all depends on where you are but my district manager had dozens of letters sent to corporate by employees asking for removal. Complaints go unheeded. lots of nepotism.

For the most part, women are treated the same as men. We have a good amount of women in leadership positions, which is helpful.

Positions working in defense/DoD typically have teams and clients that are male-centric.

    High face-time requirement, partners roam the halls to see when people come in and leave. Working from home results in email from HR. Flex-time not allowed till 4/5th year. Most associates have office-mates and closing office door is frowned upon.

Not a work day goes by where I am not thankful for my time with this company, and, for a multitude of reasons-- from wine education and experience in this type of setting, to the lifelong connections made with both coworkers and travelers/customers, alike. As with so much, attitude is key, and if yours is one of openness to the situation, there's much to be gained. If you are looking for a career in wine, though, this one will, likely, just be a temporary stop on your journey, as it's more about waiting tables than anything else. If you are more on the novice side of the sliding scale, with all-things-wine, use the opportunity to absorb what you encounter with the wines you carry. What I gleaned during my time here, even as a pretty knowledgable wine person, has proven invaluable, thanks to tremendous leaders at my location. I am grateful for my experience here, though I'm also thankful I moved on.

    It all depends on the location of the store, and the manager at each, really. There was not a consistency across the board. Again, this may very well be changing as the company has been bought out, recently.

    Have consistent, easy to understand guidelines/rules; create an environment in every store that doesn't allow for one bad apple to spoil the entire bunch; and knock off the lengthy testing, which isn't consistent nor necessary. There's a lot of unnecessary aspects to training (and continuing to train by retaking the tests over and over and over again, each time someone new in corporate wants to revamp them), which could be streamlined so much better. Plus, requiring homework and tests without compensation is illegal....

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There are issues in the company, from the top down. However, it has recently been bought by a larger company, so many of these problems may be going the way of the Dodo. Fingers crossed. The biggest issue is with the way the company structures management and promotions for their individual locations. It's too easy for some personalities to bully their way in, and very difficult to feel supported if a manager or a store culture ignores employee behavior.

Be very careful about which partner becomes your primary source of work. He or she can make or break your time at the firm. For the most part, most partners are great, but my primary partner can make life particularly onerous.

    Limit the types of partners that treat associates as "worker drones" instead of being an essential part of the team.

    Maybe. It depends on who you work for.
